Bettina + Bikinis = Bettinis

Bettina Bell, the designer. Bikinis, her main passion. Thus comes the brainchild Bettinis Bikinis. Bell grew up on the beaches of North Carolina, which inspired her to venture into the world of designer swimwear. Imagine combining that Southern charm with a fabulous sense of style; the result is Bettinis Swimwear. Now residing in California, Bettina has blended East Coast style with California boho-chic. By word of mouth and some clever cuts, Bettinis spread fast on the fashion scene. We had a chance to speak with Bettina and interview her with some informative and fun questions regarding her style AND lifestyle. See what this beautiful bombshell had to say.
